 “Kathryn Hill was my therapist through multiple life adjustments including the birth of my second child, moving into a new home and community and the consequent on-going struggles with family members. Each time I met with her I was able to work through various life changes with a better understanding of how I was being affected.

“Kathryn’s calmness, wealth of knowledge, Jungian perspective as well as concrete and logical feedback was exactly what I needed to continue to participate in the many facets of my life from a centered and empowered place.”

“Kathryn is indeed “one of the best”. I am forever grateful for the wisdom, kindness, non-judgmental and safe environment she provided.”
